    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

England's second goalless draw with Sweden virtually clinched their place in the 1990 World Cup finals. Skipper Terry Bucher was England's bloody hero. He insisted on playing on after having ten stitches inserted into a deep gash on his forehead during the half-time interval. It was a sad game for Neil Webb who limped off with an Achilles tendon injury that put him on the sidelines for several months. Bobby Robson, who had introduced Terry Butcher to professional football when manager at Ipswich, said: 'Terry's performance epitomised what he is all about. The boy is all heart and character, and he is as good a central defender as there is in the game. I have known him since he was a kid and he has never ever given less than one hundred per cent.'
